Democrat, Republican, it doesn't matter. This is an idea that needs to take off.

Space travel might be the best test of large-scale crowdfunding, but hasn't kickstarter shown the best instance of this already?

If I write the zip code on an envelope in the Untied States why do I need to also write the city and state? Doesn't the code stand for the city and state?

Sometimes, an incorrect/illegible zip code is written, with the address and name of the intended city, I received some important documents from my spouse (who, as a RN, has some of the most illegible writing out there), that were sent to zip code 02188 instead of 02138 - they finally turned out 3 days later.

Thank you Steve. You changed the world. How we work and how we live.

"Here's to the Crazy Ones.The misfits. The rebels. The trouble-makers. The round pegs in the square holes. The ones who see things differently.
They're not fond of rules, and they have no respect for the status-quo. You can quote them, disagree with them, glorify, or vilify them.
About the only thing you can't do is ignore them. Because they change things. They push the human race forward.
And while some may see them as the crazy ones, we see genius.
Because the people who are crazy enough to think they can change the world - are the ones who do.”

Were you sleeping on a plaid sofa, by any chance?

From the Small Print/Hidden Fees Department: "Wells Fargo Bill Pay works differently than Wachovia BillPay. At Wells Fargo, funds to pay your bills will be withdrawn from your account up to 5 business days earlier than they were at Wachovia."

Found my badge from the first second Netscape Developers Conference. The first one was in San Francisco, as I recall, and was so full of the unbridled promise of the future, it almost hurt.

BTW, the 1970s had the same "unbridled promise of the future" feel - moderate politics, an environmental movement, dystopian SF movies telling us what not to do, and political action based on climate science (reducing CFC, back in the day)..

It seems to crop up every 20 years, so I'm expecting the 2010s version any day now ;-)
